shining the light

We are Kait & Chris Waggoner, husband & wife, and the makers behind The Salted Lantern.

We love words. We love creativity. We love simple and natural beauty. We love cold brew. We love LOVE. We love Jesus. We love our family. We love celebrating all the things. We are so happy to be here creating simple, beautiful, and happy hand-painted signs for your wedding, event, or home.

Wood is our canvas. Each grain tells a different story, much like our art. All of our signs are crafted completely by our own two hands, out of our home workshop, all while raising our growing babies alongside our growing business. So much love, care, and attention to detail go into creating each product.

We think wood adds the perfect amount of warmth and texture to create an inviting and welcoming feel for any home or event.

We care about the quality of our product. We only use high-quality and safe materials. Our family cares about your family and we want to be sure you're hanging something in your home that is safe for all ages to enjoy.

We do not mass produce and we think there is something special about our process. Much like the uniqueness of each customer, each product is a one-of-a-kind piece of art. It could never be produced the same because each detail is completely hand-painted.

Our journey thus far has been humbling & invigorating. We've grown from 7 shop items to over 100, and have thousands of signs hanging in homes all over the world. We're constantly looking at one another with disbelief, but knowing that God can bring us farther than our wildest dreams have ever imagined. And he has & continues to do so.

Thank you for making your way to our shop. Thank you for loving us and for blessing us with your encouraging messages and emails. Thank you for helping us provide for our little {growing} family. As our shop continues to grow, we want you to know that we love creating beautiful things for you. You are important to us. Know that customer service is number one on our list of "to do's". We love that we can build relationships with our customers and "be there" for life's biggest moments. Weddings, babies, and beyond.
We hope to be that friend that you enjoy coming back to visit over, and over again.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Dimensions of each sign can be found in the item description.

Wholesale availability

Please contact us about potential wholesale orders.

Custom and personalized orders

We are only able to accept 7 custom orders per month. Please see our shop announcement to see if we're currently accepting custom orders.

Gift wrapping and packaging

We love to give gifts. We will happily gift wrap, send a handwritten note, and make the recipient feel so special when opening their gift. :)

Care instructions

Our signs are meant to be hung indoors unless otherwise noted. If you'd like to hang your sign outside, let us know and we will add a polyurethane finish. It's typical for wood to change very slightly with weather. It is possible for wood to expand or bend very slightly.

Where do you get your wood?

All of our wood is locally sourced. We purchase untreated, quality pine wood and put it through a natural staining and aging process. Unlike pallet wood and some reclaimed wood, our wood contains no harmful chemicals and it completely safe to hang inside any room of your home.

How do I hang my sign on the wall?

Our wedding signs do not come ready to hang, but hanging hardware is available to add on for a small cost.
If you are purchasing a large sign, we recommend using a heavy nail and hanging where there is a stud in the wall. If you are unable to find a stud where you'd like to hang your sign, you can use a wall anchor.

Shipping & Production Times

Production times are stated in each listing. If you need your item within this time frame, please message me and we are always happy to try to accommodate.
We do have a limited amount of rush orders available each month. Feel free to inquire if interested.

Please note, we cannot guarantee the day of your delivery, only the day we ship your package.


Please be sure that your shipping address is correct before completing the checkout process!!! We are unable to easily change the shipping address once the order has already processed! While we always make customer service a top priority, we are unable to take responsibility for orders delivered to an incorrect mailing address if it was written incorrectly by the buyer.

Why don't you offer FREE SHIPPING?

In 2019 Etsy encouraged sellers to offer "free shipping" to their customers by building the shipping cost into the product cost. We went through a trial period offering this "free" shipping, but ultimately learned that it did not benefit anyone, and we only felt that we were not being truthful in saying shipping was free, when in fact, it wasn't.
By building the cost into the item, we had to use estimated shipping costs, and buyers were actually paying more for shipping in the end. We felt this was dishonest and not helpful for anyone.
We now offer our items with calculated shipping, which you are paying exactly what it costs to ship. Thank you for understanding our morals & values of operating our business with honesty and integrity!
